I feel so inspired by this article! Thank you so much for putting into words something I feel regularly.
"Feminism is about persuading someone of your humanity." So well said! It does feel demeaning and outrageous. Isn't it common sense that all humans should be equal?
I've started prioritizing my feminist writing as a way to heal myself and connect with other women. I don't write to "reach men." Because as you said, they should be outraged already.
Also, dear God, I feel so embarrassed for humanity by reading some of these comments. I value your work greatly, and I hope you continue being yourself and speaking your mind, especially when you feel angry!
- With love
